On the same page, this movie is called both &quot;Intellectually Weak,&quot; and &quot;In love with its own intelligence&quot; by different IMDb users. Clearly, that alone makes this film worth your time and worth forming your own opinion about.<br/><br/>The thing is, this is not a stupid film by any means. &#39;Visually stunning,&#39; it is constantly called, but it&#39;s not just that: It&#39;s an assault on the senses (in a good way), both visually and aurally. The sound is incredible, the images stick with you. Even a simple, seemingly underthought image like the final two shots of the movie will stick with you long after the closing credits roll.<br/><br/>But how is the story? I haven&#39;t seen the original in years, but this one held my attention, and kept my brain engaged. I remember not liking the first one when I first saw it (too many scenes of nothing moving, while we listened to voice-over), but I give this one an enthusiastic thumbs up, plus a wink and a smile. It FEELS like the middle chapter in a story... there is too much left unresolved, and while seeing the first one isn&#39;t necessary to understanding this one, there ARE many references the original &quot;Ghost in the Shell.&quot; It&#39;s not so much a continuation of the story, as it is a continuation of the characters. Which I think is the better call.<br/><br/>Constant quotes from literature is not a sign of intellectual weakness, I don&#39;t think. People accuse the movie of not having a brain of its own, but I think any movie that engages the brain of its audience needn&#39;t make apologies. This one remains interesting on all levels; I just hope it doesn&#39;t take them another nine years to produce part three.<br/><br/>10/10

I agree with an earlier reviewer that both hardcore Oshii fans and narrow-minded American viewers are missing the point by not viewing this movie on its own terms. In many ways, it&#39;s more thoroughly conceived, and less action-justified (more thoughtful) than Ghost in the Shell. For me, it progressed naturally from its predecessor: Where Ghost in the Shell asks questions about the nature of human individuality, Innocence asks the next set of questions, about human existence. And it asks them in ways so much more directly pertinent to our own lives than utterly fantastic treatments like the Matrix films and silly diversions like The Butterfly Effect.<br/><br/>The ideas of the story are genuinely original, and thoroughly conceived. I don&#39;t think I&#39;ve ever seen a science fiction film that was as true to the real spirit of the genre as this pair; Japan in general seems to take science fiction much more seriously than any western film-culture, and so out of Japan we get real, serious attempts to tell science-fictional stories, filled with real ideas and real characters, instead of the Bat-Durstonized monstrosities we get in the west.<br/><br/>For me, the integration of 2D and 3D elements was jarring; but the story stands on its ideas and the strength of its plot.

I just got through watching this film and it amazed me. I agree with the previous post that Innocence is full of philosophy, Descartes is even mentioned by name, and this is by no means a negative.<br/><br/>Constant rhetorical statements within the film make you think which is very refreshing.<br/><br/>Nothing whatsoever to do with the first film, which i am a fan of, but isn&#39;t improvement a good thing? Who wants to see a rewritten film anyway? Look elsewhere for films like that, I&#39;m thinking Cruel intentions 1, 2 &amp; 3 etc etc etc I might even like this more than &#39;Akira&#39;, but ill see if i manage to watch Innocence another 14 times and still love it...<br/><br/>I would highly recommend this film to anyone, not just Anime/Manga fans.
